La Peste: Sketch of a Cordovan-leather-clad doctor


Johann Melchior Füssli (1677–1736), Sketch of a Cordovan-leather-clad doctor of Marseilles

The legend at the bottom of the engraving has been translated thus: "Sketch of a doctor of Marseilles clad in cordovan leather equipped with a nose-case packed with plague-repelling smoking material. With the wand he is to feel the pulse."
